Wine in the Pines

Date: Apr 14 - Aug 18, 2023
Time: 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join us on our adult-only “Wines in the Pines” excursion train, where we will journey through the Piney Woods of East Texas while sampling the fine wines of Red 55 Winery, located in Lindale, TX. Red 55 Winery is the signature winery of the Texas State Railroad. As we begin our 4-hour round-trip journey from the Palestine, TX Railroad Depot, you will sample the award-winning vintage of Red 55 Winery and savor select appetizers paired to compliment each wine. We will make our way over to the Rusk, TX Railroad Depot, guided by the moonlight, where we will stop and have dinner under the stars. The return excursion, featuring a final vintage and dessert, allows ample time for all wine lovers to savor a full serving of their favorite blend, comparing notes and sharing stories with friends and loved ones.

All classes of seating will be served a complimentary appetizer onboard the train as well as a Texas State Railroad Wine Glass as a memento of your journey with us. Dinner will be served on the grounds of the Rusk Rail Depot and is included in your ticket price. A fine selection of alcoholic beverages, including mixed drinks, wine, and beer, as well as non-alcoholic beverages, will be available onboard for purchase.

Multiple Wine trains are offered throughout the season featuring different local wineries. Please check the schedule for featured winery.
